The rules to follow depend on the citation style.
MLA: Treat the author (United States) as a "corporate author." In-text/parenthetical citations need to be created that direct the reader to the specific reference listed on the Works Cited page. Refer to these webpages at the Purdue University OWL:
- In-Text Citation: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/02/
- Works Cited: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/06/
APA: Use the guidelines for "Organization as an Author." Depending on the number of documents you are citing, there are two webpages to read on how to correctly format the entries.
- Organization as author: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/03/
- Two or More Works by the same author in the same year: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/06/
Chicago: Citing government documents in Chicago is easier than MLA or APA. These two library guides from other academic libraries provide excellent information.
